Event description

Description

An effective, consistent identity is crucial to building brand recognition and adding value to your business. But where should small, creative businesses start?

Well, we think you should start with The Basics of Branding for Small Creative Businesses.

In this workshop we’ll run through how to boss your brand, with everything you need to beautifully represent you, your products and your business.

This includes:

  • A branding checklist covering each brand element you need

  • If you’re outsourcing, how to make your designer's job as easy as delicious pie

  • Techy things, like which file types to use where and when

  • How to carry your brand across different platforms like print, web and social

  • A fun, practical activity to put your new learning into practice and boss a brand critique.

The Basics of Branding for Small Creative Businesses workshop will run from 6:30 - 8:30pm, followed by a dedicated 30 minutes Q&A and chit chat time.


What you'll get out of the Studio Cotton workshop

We'll take you through a branding checklist, explaining each element you need for your business, how to pick them and most importantly, why. We'll use worksheets, as well as simple single and group exercises, to get you thinking about immediate choices and changes you can make to improve your business.

At the end of the workshop, you should feel more comfortable about branding your small creative business. You'll also be able to take away any resources and worksheets used during the session.


Who's the workshop for?

This workshop has been developed for any freelance creative, maker, seller or small business owner. From artists and illustrators to jewellers, yoga teachers to florists and shopkeepers to anything outside or in between.

It's perfect for creatives who are just starting on their brand journey, as well as those with some ideas or brand elements but want guidance on what to do next.

No previous knowledge or expertise is required.

Workshop FAQs

Refreshments
You can enjoy a small selection of teas, coffee, cold drinks and cake during the workshop. If you have any dietary requirements, please get in touch before booking to make sure these can be accommodated.

About the venue
Studio Cotton is the home of a dedicated space for creative business workshops. This intimate studio seats up to 20, but we like to keep our workshops to a more intimate 5 - 12 to ensure each participant feels comfortable and able to share, ask and learn.

Our venue is a bit of a Bristol secret. Nestled away in the heart of the Old City, you can find our front door tucked away on Exchange Avenue, nextdoor to St Nicks Market, opposite Eatchu and above Trailfinders Travel Agents.

Accessibility
Studio Cotton is located on the third floor of a listed building, and unfortunately the building’s elevator travels to the second floor. For this reason, there is no step-free access available.

Transport
Studio Cotton is located in the centre of Bristol and served by most public transport routes. Parking on the other hand is a little trickier. There is limited Pay & Display parking available on Corn Street and St Nicholas Street.

The closest multi-story car parks are Queen Charlotte Street, Nelson Street and The Galleries Shopping Centre, at the time of writing The Galleries Shopping Centre offers affordable parking after 5pm Monday to Saturday and all-day on Sundays - but do check this before you make your journey.

Contacting the Host
If you have any questions about the workshop or venue, you can contact Studio Cotton by email using hello@studiocotton.co.uk. We aim to reply to your message within 2 working days.

Cancellations & Refunds
Refunds are available up to 7 days before the event start time. We reserve the right to cancel or postpone this workshop, if this happens all purchasers will receive a full refund of their ticket price.

Other events at Studio Cotton
We run 8 expert-led, curated workshops which are repeated three times a year in a Spring, Summer and Autumn series. These are complemented with Walkthroughs to showcase how to use key apps mentioned in the workshops, such as MailChimp, Later and Eventbrite. There are also more casual meet ups like the Studio Cotton Clinics and Studio Cotton Photomeets if you’d like a more relaxed, chit chat vibe.
